O's need a better offense.

I think he goes on the IL for 10 days.

He will be out at least a month I bet.

Shocking that he would get hurt!

I guess we will see a lot of Hays in right.

It's funny, I was planning on putting together a post about how after all these years of following our young OF prospects, and after all the winding roads they had taken, all of those roads had converged and here they all were, and it was time for each of them to start showing consistent results at the MLB level.

And then literally the night Hays gets back Santander goes down.

It’s kind of a freak injury that could happen to anyone.   I remember some people didn’t want to sign Manny long term because of his knee issues in 2013-14.   Since then he’s played in 871 of a possible 888 games.   I’m not a big believer that past injury history forecasts future “injury proneness” except in cases where the same type of injury has recurred several times.   I don’t think Santander was more prone to sprain his ankle than anyone else.    Now if was an oblique injury, that might worry me.

No but some people just always find ways to be on the IL...whether that makes them injury prone or not is semantics.  All that matters is that they aren’t available on a relatively regular basis and that’s a problem.

I don't like the Manny comp since it was made clear that he had a congenital flaw in his knees.  It's just a shame he didn't get them both fixed at the same time since it was going to be a matter of when, and not if, his other knee was going to fail.

While you are correct, that certainly didn't stop people from bringing it up repeatedly even after that had been explained.

So in three years Elias has somehow taken this team backwards.  There is less offensive depth, less consistency, less power, less on base skills, and outside of AR I dont really see a prospect I am excited about offensively.

We also have to remember that BA is suffering around the league too.  The offenses will get better.

 

1.  Our offense is bad.

2.  Our offense is not this bad.

3.   The change in the ball may reduce scoring around the league this year.  

4.  Early season games are usually low scoring.   

5.   It’s a long season, and there will be ups and downs.   We have started slow offensively but will have better periods.

These are the bottom 4 teams in MLB Team OPS. I bolded the Runs per game on the left and team OPS numbers on the right.
